10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs | Edudemic | Ipads in education | Scoop.it
Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators. Here are ten tricks that can make your life easier with Google Docs:

Mark Fuson's curator insight, July 19, 2014 10:03 AM

I must admit, I've got to get better at some of these. One of the biggest issues with learning something is practice and practice takes time and the willingness to fail. Unfortunately, teachers often are so rushed by their schedules that they can't afford to struggle with something in order to learn it because they have 165 students, 3 different preps, papers to grade, a family life, and curriculum to create. Unless we change these factors, how can a teacher learn new skills in the classroom and why would they try to if experiencing a little failure could negatively impact evaluation?

Soms wil je een voorwerp uit een foto of afbeelding losmaken van de achtergrond, bijvoorbeeld voor je webwinkel. Als je nu geen Photoshop tot je beschikking hebt, is Background Burner een leuk en bruikbaar alternatief.

 

Selecteer of sleep een afbeelding naar het scherm en laat het programma zijn werk doen. Je kunt daarna de meest geschikte uitzoeken en eventueel nog bijwerken en een andere achtergrond kiezen.

How to prevent bullying? Is teaching empathy the answer?

How to prevent bullying? Is teaching empathy the answer? | Ipads in education | Scoop.it
Teaching empathy is better than other ways to prevent bullying, says researchers. Children are less likely to bully others if they are empathetic.Children are less likely to pick on their peers if they know the extent that the damage they have done, can go to. Experts also back up this prevailing wisdom. But kids are not born empathetic. They are susceptible to impulses.Trying to tame bullies by teaching them empathy is one of the most effective ways to prevent bullying. But experts also suggest that teaching empathy may have the opposite effect on children.Is Empathy the Solution to Bullying?
